This long-awaited book offers the first overview of all British-led excavation sites in and around Rome in the golden age of the Grand Tour in the eighteenth century. Based on work carried out by the late Ilaria Bignamini, it traces sculptures and other works of art that are currently in public collections around the world from their original find sites via the dealers and entrepreneurs to the private collectors in Britain. In the first of two extensively illustrated volumes, approximately fifty sites are analyzed in historical and topographical detail, supported by fifty newly written and researched biographies of the major names in the Anglo-Italian world of dealing and collecting. The second volume features hundreds of letters from dealers and excavators abroad to collectors in England, offering a rich source of information about all aspects of the art market at the time.
